Reflections for Police Officer Anthony A. Byrd

well!!! well!!!
how fast time and years really fly by? it has been 1 1/2 years since God brought you home with Him. things has not and never will be the same for the family. the only thing that we can do is reminisce about the past and hope for the future. this has been a trying time for all of us since you have been gone; however, we all know that everything will be alright because God is on each of our sides and is in control of everything. we miss you and always will but until we all see each other again God will allow you our guardian angel to continue to keep watch over us
love and miss you this holiday season
until we meet again

its that time of the year.the time you spend the most with your know what i am talking your house laughing joking watching the kids open their gift.well im going to get to the hard i miss you. things has changed since you left.not going to go into detail.but some know what i am talking about.sundays i been going to the altar for prayer because it is hard knowing that your not here doing this time of year when you know that you were the special that made this time special and i type my eyes water because i want to hear your voice and jokes one more time.i dont care if it is a dream that i am with you again and i want it to feel real.i still see your casket at the front of the church like it was your funeral.that makes me cry but what makes me cry the most is when i think about the activities that we did together and had fun are over.i thank GOD that i got to go on the cruise with you because you were saying that you wanted me to go on one with you not knowing that, that would be the first and last cruise together, but i thank GOD for that.didnt mean to talk you to crazy but i had alot on my mind and more.LIVE YOUR LIFE TO THE FULLEST!RIGHT

love you tony always

This has been a really hard time for me, but for all the times that it is hard, they're days that I walked around with a big ole smile on my face because something reminds me of you. It was funny because just the other day I was thinking of all the stupid stuff we did as kids. Like the driving to philly just because we wanted a cheese steak!!!
I also remembered how I would fight anyone and everyone for trying to mess the you. I always looked out for you and vice versa. I miss it. Taalam and I were at your mom's for thanksgiving and he was saying that it just wasn't the same. No jokes, no laughs no pictionary. I miss you so much. God, I still wish you were here. We all love you and miss you terribly. Ijust know you had more to say (do) before you left here and all I hope is that one day I when we meet again, I get to hear the rest.

This thing called life is so crazy. You have ups and downs and highs and lows. I was just sitting here thinking about the middle of the road(that grey area if you will). You never lived,worked or played in that("grey area"). You had this life thing all planned out. I really miss your game plan because I'm seeing some shades of grey.
All of us miss and love you.

Hey Byrd,

Well, I miss you my friend. I was just telling someone how one day i ran the stop sign, by mistake, and when you saw it was me you "like I should have knew it was you." We laughed and I promised you I would not give you a serious call. You would tell me to stop drinking pepsi and chocolate before my shift, because I talked to first. I thank God for memories and your friendship.

To Shanell keep your sweet spirit. To the girls remember your daddy is always looking over you.

Your dispatcher and friend forever,

Oh... Today is a beautiful day( just like the day we said " I Do"). The sun is shining and the birds are signing and I am smiling from ear to ear. Thank you for the wonderful marriage. I wish you were here to celebrate, but I'm just starting to understand Heaven needed you more. Keep watching over your family and friends. All of us miss and love you.

Hey Byrd, just want to let you know that I miss you. I was helping out with court summonses at work, and I ran accross a new one for you. You would think this dept would at least get something like this right, knowing that you are not here with us. That just brought back more anger and sadness to know that you were taken from us. This pain of the loss of you and Winder will never leave my body. I still wear both of your memory pins on my uniform for you and Winder. My heart aches and my prayers continuously go out to your family. We have also lost another SWD Ofc. John Johnson to cancer. He was always at work, and devoted his life to make life better for his family. I just wished he had more time to spend with his family instead of being at work. You and Winder take care of him up there.
Til we meet again, keep shinning down on us!

If tears could build a stairway,
and memories a lane.
I would walk right up to Heaven,
and bring you back again.

No farewell words were spoken.
No time to say "Goodbye".
You were gone before I knew it,
and only God knows why.

My heart still aches with sadness,
and secret tears still flow.
What it meant to love you~
No one will ever know.

But now I know you want me
to mourn for you no more;
To remember all the happy times,
life still has much in store.

Since you'll never be forgotten,
I pledge to you today~
A hallowed place within my heart
is where you'll always stay.

I've been thinking of you a lot. Some days it is really hard for me to make it through. I truly miss you, you will always be my cousin and one of my best friends. You are a true example of what all men should be. You would be really proud of me-I've really tried to spend more time with our family and I know that's something that I didn't do a lot of when you were here. Thinking of you ....

thinking of you on this 4th of July holiday. we all miss you. Everytime I see a police car made like the one that you were driving on the day of the accident I think of you and sorrow/anger fills my heart. Shantell and the girls are looking good and better day by day but we all know that there will always be avoid. Oh by the way Gary and I are grandparents can you believe that. I know Big Gary as you call him will be writing you soon to inform you of the new arrival on 6/29. Love you and miss you dearly

Hey Officer Byrd,

We were a big family in the Southwest District. I found out what happend to you while I was in my annual training. While walking down the hallway in the police academy, I glanced on the safety bulletin board and I saw your memorial page and broke down in tears. I was in disbelief to find out what happend to such a wonderful person. I made a copy of your page, Officer Gavin's, and Officer Winder's and placed it on my locker and I would look at it every day before I start my daily tour. Continue to watch over your family and I will keep your family in my prayers.

Hey Byrd, I need one of your pep talks. I need a little uplifting and wish you were here to help me see things in a more positive way. I just wish you could to tell me something funny so that I can laugh, like you always did. Miss you much!
